NEPA Air Quality Report Set for Release Tomorrow

The results of the air quality monitoring and associated tests conducted during the recent fire at the Riverton City Dump will be released tomorrow.

That’s according to the National Environment and Planning Agency, NEPA.

NEPA had announced earlier that the results would have been released last Friday.

But CEO, Peter Knight says NEPA is reviewing comments on the tests, from a leading member of academia.

He says the report will be released after that review is completed.

The fire at Riverton, which lasted for about two weeks in early April, forced the closure of some 50 schools and businesses.

More than 8-hundred persons had to seek medicinal attention after thick smoke and smog blanketed the corporate area for days.
